Djerdap represents the unity of the natural and cultural heritage of Serbia, because of the specific natural features of this area, it has also obtained extremely valuable cultural heritage. The coastal belt of the Danube in Djerdap was inhabited in prehistoric times, and the discovered archaeological values testify to the continuity of life – from the monumental culture of the Neolithic, Lepenski Vir, through the monuments of ancient and medieval period, to modern times. Djerdap, The Iron Gates, has been a challenge for travelers, merchants, warriors and peacekeepers for thousands of years.
